We're interested in your input! As a beta test, we would like to schedule a Google Hangout on Friday at 10:00AM. It's an open session so pop in and chat. The session will be what you make of it. Look forward to seeing you!

We're entertaining the idea of holding "chat" sessions with the public via Google Hangouts. Opportunity to meet your responders and get your questions answered. What do you think?

Today winter weather resulted in only minimal accidents during rush hour. The weather did remind us though of the Ice Storm that hit Springfield and the rest of Southwest Missouri 5 years ago today. Boone County assisted the local responders by sending a Fire Engine and crew as well as several Incident Support Team (IST) officers.

If you live in Columbia or Boone County, take 5 minutes to help us help you during an emergency. Set up a Smart911 account today. It's free and helps us and the dispatch center help you when you're not home or when you're too sick to communicate. Let us know if you have any questions

Glad to see we're not the only Fire Departments exploring Google+ as a way to reach our customers. Great to be in such good company.
